That is correct. But I should point out worldwide elections where even
possible using Crispin's ten year out of date philosophy.
And as evidenced by Karls seat - and those of the other former elected board
members - ICANN was successful in making it work.
There were some issues I found that contributed to election fraud. They did
not have a process in place to verify the elector - i.e. those who vote. So
the result of that is potential for fraud. I myself voted some five - maybe
ten times under different names after ICANN denied me my right to vote as
Joe Baptista - they claimed back then I did not exist. So i took ICANNs
advice and voted under some five or ten pseudonyms.
There a lot of fraud at ICANN.
